On campus, we provide a safe place for speakers to get feedback, ask questions, and have conversations about their own public, interpersonal, and group communication. Our center is a judgment-free space in which our primary goal is to meet speakers where they are in their speaking process. Some speakers make appointments to receive support on completing the oral communication elements of course assignments while others have personal or professional oral communication goals they wish to focus on.
Two day policy – Those seeking to utilize our consultation services for an upcoming presentation need to arrange for their appointment to take place not closer than two days before their final presentation date.
Communication Center Directors attending the 12th Annual Excellence at the Center Conference agreed that our 2-day policy is a best practice for supporting speakers as they make their way through the speech making process. This policy better ensures that speakers visit us during the process of speech discovery and organization.
Viewing recorded speech – We view speeches via projector so that the image is large enough for us to see a speaker’s face. While speakers are welcome to plug their device into our PC for projecting, doing so will require them having the proper cord and/or adapter. Instead, we recommend that speeches be saved to UNCG Google Drive or another cloud/sharing location before arriving for a video viewing/goal setting session.
